Presiding:
Present:

Howard Part, M.D. Drs. Berberich, Clasen, Czachor, Dunn, Fyffe, Lauf, Lawhorne, LeRoy, Mirkin, Parmelee, Pickoff, Ventolini and Cindy Young, Betty Kangas, Kym Koester

I. Approval of Minutes of January 10, 2008 The minutes were approved as distributed. II. Report of the Dean: A. Local 1. Chair Search Update a. Department of Medicine – Dr. Glenn Solomon has accepted the position as chair, Department of Medicine and will officially begin work on June 1, 2008. b. Dr. Part thanked Dr. John Czachor for doing a remarkable job as interim chair. John provided excellent leadership and went above and beyond the call of duty. B. State 1. ORSP status report. The total number of proposals submitted is in the low 20’s instead of the expected mid 40’s. BSOM has 2 submissions; Neuroscience and Calamityville. There will be a meeting March 5th in Columbus to discuss the proposals, and there should be a decision in April or May. 2. State budget shortfall. The state of Ohio is in bad financial shape. Because of a legislative mandate, the budget must be balanced at the end of the biennium. The governor and the chancellor have made a commitment to higher education, and no yearend budget cuts have been announced. We anticipate that the amount we will receive in the second year will be what the state originally had in mind. Any shortfall will affect tuition. Undergraduate tuition will not increase because of the instituted 2-year freeze, but graduate and doctorate programs can increase tuition. However, it remains in our best interest to minimize any tuition increase. C. National 1. Proposed IME/DSH funding cuts: The amount of proposed reductions are quite substantial over the next two years. This may lead to substantial hospital partner belt tightening and trickle down cuts to us.

III. Information Items A. Personnel actions (Attachment 1) – Personnel Actions were approved with changes. B. Members’ Items - none IV. Old Business - none V. New Business A. Dermatology– Dr. Part Dermatology was downsized to a division within the Department of Medicine after a failed chair search several years ago. The faculty has grown, the residency program recently received full accreditation after a few rocky years and research productivity has increased substantially. In recognition of this success, Dr. Michael Heffernan has been appointed Chair of the department of Dermatology. B. Professionalism Task Force – Dr. Part Several years ago, a task force was charged to review professionalism at the BSOM. Dr. Part will establish a new task force to examine this issue specifically from the faculty and the institutional perspective. If any chair would be interested in serving on this task force, please email Dr. Part. C. Research Task Force – Dr. Part Our strategic plan calls for creation of a task force of both clinical and basic science chairs, to be chaired by the associate dean for research, to help to develop visionary strategies to build on existing strengths and synergies. Additionally, creative use of BIF as a resource for augmenting the research mission of the BSOM will be part of the committees charge. The size of the task force will be minimized to achieve greater productivity. D. Student Work Duty Hours – Dr. Parmelee (Attachment 2) LCME accreditation standards call for an enforced work duty hours policy. The Faculty Curriculum Committee has implemented the attached student work duty hours policy, which will be included in the BSOM Student Handbook. Students will be asked to report any violations of this policy, which will begin with the current 3rd year students. This policy will also be sent to residency directors to ensure that all affected individuals are informed. E. Marketing and Branding BSOM WSP and BSOM representatives concluded the process of hiring a firm to assist in branding and marketing strategies. After a bidding process, Turner Effect has been retained to conduct extensive research on our constituencies’ perception of the Boonshoft School of Medicine, Wright State Physicians and Wright State University and how they are connected in the public’s mind. The goal is to create a strong and consistent brand through effective research. Turner Effect will help us develop a brand for the Boonshoft School of Medicine and Wright State Physicians. In addition, Turner Effect will help develop marketing strategies and help update Vital Signs and our web site.

Boonshoft School of Medicine
Policy and Procedures Related to Medical Student Work Duty Hours and Management of Fatigue 1.0 Background The Liaison Committee on Medical Education Standard ED-#38 states: "The committee responsible for the curriculum, along with medical school administration and educational program leadership, must develop and implement policies regarding the amount of time students spend in required activities, including the total required hours spent in clinical and educational activities during clinical clerkships." In the annotation to the standard it states: "Attention should be paid to the time commitment required of medical students, especially during the clinical years. Students' hours should be set taking into account the effects of fatigue and sleep deprivation on learning, clinical activities, and student health and safety." Furthermore, the School of Medicine notes that medical students are not responsible for patient care activities, and do not perform procedures without direct, on site, close supervision by a licensed health care provider. As a result, student fatigue should never lead to patient care errors or misjudgments. While students must learn that high quality patient care requires personal sacrifice including at times, loss of regular sleep patterns, erratic meal times, and absence from customary social events and personal recreation, they must strive to discover compensatory strategies to maintain physical and mental health, as well as appropriate social and personal relationships. Therefore, to protect medical students from excessive fatigue that may impair functioning, the following policy has been adopted. SUMMARY OF POLICY: See below for more specific details of policy     Students will be on duty no more than an average of 80 hours per week Students will not spend more than 30 consecutive hours on duty Students will receive an average of 1 day in 7 free from all scheduled responsibilities Students will not be required to take overnight call 2 evenings prior to the end of clerkship subject exam

2.0 Policy 2.1 Medical students engaged in clinical activity will be on duty no more than 80 hours per week (averaged over a four week period). For the purposes of this policy, duty hours are defined as time spent in the hospital or clinics directly related to patient care and on-call time (even if spent sleeping). Preparation for patient care, educational requirements such as in-hospital conferences, required didactics, or exams are not considered “duty” time and may be done outside of the clinical settings.

Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Executive Committee Minutes February 14, 2008 Page 10

2.2 Medical students shall not spend beyond 30 consecutive hours in the clinical setting while on duty. This allows students to remain in the hospital post-call for a few hours in order to complete on-call notes, patient care, and for the educational experience related to their on-call activities that may take place during the morning post-call. 2.3 Medical students will be provided with an average of 1 day in 7 free from all educational and clinical responsibilities, averaged over a 4-week period, inclusive of call. One day is defined as one continuous 24-hour period free from all clinical and educational activities. 2.4 Medical students will not be required to take overnight “call” two evenings prior to the end of clerkship rotation written subject examination. 2.5 Student assignment for 24-hour “call” experiences should be scheduled based on student learning requirements and never on any service needs of the institution. 2.6 Students must be instructed on the signs and consequences of sleep impairment and emotional fatigue. 2.7 Students must have adequate sleeping facilities at every teaching site in which 24-hour call activities occur. These facilities must be available to the student 24 hours a day. 2.8 If a student feels that s/he may be at risk when operating a motor vehicle because of fatigue or sleep deprivation, they should obtain sleep at the on site call room before departing the premises or ask someone to take them home. 2.9 Faculty (and residents) should monitor students for symptoms and signs suggestive of impairment (including learning impairment) due to sleep deprivation and/or emotional fatigue. The faculty must advise the student appropriately if such observations are confirmed. 2.10 Faculty must notify the Clerkship Director of any student who suffers continued, persistent signs of sleep deprivation or emotional fatigue. If the situation persists, then faculty must notify the Associate Dean of Student Affairs. Students should notify the Associate Dean of Student Affairs if they feel their learning is impaired due to sleep deprivation or emotional fatigue. Students should notify the appropriate faculty attending, Clerkship Director or his/her designee if s/he believes that in any way this policy is being violated.

3.0 Procedure 3.1 Prior to starting the M3 year, all medical students must sign the attached attestation statement indicating that they have read and understand this policy and will abide by its

Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine Executive Committee Minutes February 14, 2008 Page 11

standards. The attestation statement should be turned into the Office of Student Affairs no later than the first day of the M3 year. 3.2 Prior to starting the M3 year, all medical students must complete SAFER training (Sleep Alertness, and Fatigue Education in Residency). A printed certificate indicating that the student has successfully completed the training should be turned into the Office of Student Affairs no later than the first day of the M3 year. 3.3 All visiting students must follow the same procedure prior to being allowed to engage in clinical activities.
